This chapter integrates the dominant lines of argument of the different chapters and suggest some directions in which the law and legal reasoning seem to be developing. It starts by identifying three trends that several chapters in this book have highlighted: the emergence of common values, the dispersion of authority and deformalization. It then discusses three fundamental questions that are raised by these developments and that determine our perspectives on the future development of the interaction between the international and the domestic sphere: the nature and limits of the concept of law itself, the role of normative argument, and the consequences thereof for the position of the domestic judge.

Keywords:   global legal pluralism, dispersion of authority, deformalization, fragmentation, domestic judiciary, common values, normative argument, monism, dualism, rule of law
